Say “Yes” to Your Life: Opening to God’s Power Within 

Peterkin Camp and Conference Center – Romney, WV

Is it possible to awaken to the infinite possibilities for joy, presence and creativity that God offers us every day?  Can we embrace a way of living that brings the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love?  Is there a way to more deeply experience this great Mystery that is Life?   Using Benedictine Spirituality as a foundation, the women of the Diocese of West Virginia will explore how saying “Yes” to life releases God’s power within to be disciples and sisters in Christ.  We will explore ways that we can say “Yes” through Benedictine practices such as awareness, being in the present moment and prayer.  If you sometimes feel your life is not “quite right,” join us to discover a path to Christ and to possibility.

This program is open to all women.

For further information please contact Nancy Tonkin at nancy.tonkin@wvtmg.com.

Sponsored by the Women’s Ministries of the Diocese of West Virginia.
